Wonderful Spring Break!
Great beach house. Definitely a vacation feel with the coziness of home. Lots of areas for eating, playing games & just hanging out with family. Just a quick walk or bike ride to beach & beach club pool. Will absolutely stay here again!
Thanks for your kind words! We're glad you enjoyed our "little slice of heaven!"
The BEST place in the area!
This was our 4th trip to Watercolor/Seaside and the 4th time to stay at Pelican Porch! Such a perfect location to everything in both Watercolor and Seaside. The beach house if beautifully decorated and the owner's show great attention to every detail! Couldn't be more pleased with everything about it. The rental came with 4 bikes and the rental company was also very accommodating...bikes were there when we arrived! It's close to Seaside and all the wonderful restaurants in the area. The house works well with our family...great large area for gathering together and enjoying great fellowship! Next trip, you can be sure we will be staying at Pelican Porch!
You are always so gracious with your comments! It's a pleasure having you, and we look forward to your return!
Perfect vacation at Pelican Porch!!
"If we return to Watercolor, can we stay here again?", the kids asked before our vacation ended. "ABSOLUTELY!"
It's been 10 years since we've visited the beaches on 30A. The kids are now old enough to bike, swim and play tennis on their own. Watercolor was the perfect spot for us. Pelican Porch is beautifully appointed and well maintained. Our every need was accommodated. Each bedroom suite has its own full bath. The porches and decks are wonderful! My husband used the screen porch off the master as his office for the week. Bob and his team corresponded efficiently with all the information we needed to make our vacation a success. I can't imagine a more perfect location in the community to stay. Ideally situated close to the beach club (w/pool), boathouse (w/pool), tennis courts and town center of Seaside. Bike rentals were included in our rate, bikes were waiting for us upon our arrival. When we had trouble with one of our bikes a replacement was provided quickly (Thanks 30A Bike Rental!!) My husband played Sharks Tooth one day. When he arrived for his tee time he was told he was not eligible to play because he was not renting at Watercolor through St. John Properties. When he mentioned the club he is a member of at home, they allowed him to play under reciprocity. I may have misunderstood, I thought we had access by renting Pelican Porch. This may need some clarification. He loved the course. Transitioning to real life after a week at Pelican Porch is not easy…it was a wonderful vacation. There is much we miss about it. We hope to return one day!
Pelican Porch is beautiful! The home is in impeccable condition and so nicely decorated. It is very open, airy and bright, with multiple outdoor sitting spots, including a peaceful front porch, a top level outdoor deck (wraparound) and two screened-in areas...so perfect for a family on vacation! Lots of room in this house - it could easily accommodate two families comfortably. We loved the location (very close to Seaside and WaterColor resort/beach)...just a short bikeride away. Also close to tennis and the boathouse. Ideal spot! Loved having the bikes waiting for us when we arrived. The owner is beyond friendly and a pleasure to work with. Everything was easy and the home itself exceeded our expectations. Highly recommend Pelican Porch!!
What a great vacation at a fabulous house
We (two families with five kids aged 6 thru 10) just returned from our second vacation to Watercolor and our first to Pelican Porch. We did lots of research on many houses. Having been to Watercolor before we had a pretty good understanding of location and this one could not be beat which was a major reason to chose it. We were an easy bike ride to the beach club or the camp pool and a very short walk to seaside. It made this location our favorite in all of watercolor.
The house was also great. It was perfect for two families as it was very well equipped with all you need in the kitchen as well as lots of sitting space that could easily fit both families around the dining room table or sitting on the couches - yet another plus. The house was also spotless - sometimes you rent a house and it is just not as clean as you had hoped but this one was better. It had very comfortable beds and great linens which just added to the feeling of being away. And Bob, who is the owner, was incredibly responsive and helpful prior to and during our stay.
As far as things to do. we loved all the porches in the house…we had coffee on the front porch, dinners on the back screened in porch - it was perfect. Always fun to just ride bikes, fish, crafts for kids at the camp, a walk into seaside or, of course, time at the beach and pool. We would highly recommend watercolor and this house.
Soooooo very kind in your comments! Thanks for coming, and please come back and see us again real soon!
Great home, great location, perfect for families
My family and one other - four adults, six kids, all under the age of 5 - stayed at Pelican Porch in the summer of 2012. We had an absolutely wonderful stay and I would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking to stay in Watercolor. The owner called us when we checked in to make sure we'd gotten in ok and everything was working correctly, which it was. The home itself has four bedrooms - three that can easily accomodate grown ups (or babies who want a queen bed...) and a bunk room that our four oldest kids really enjoyed. You can easily walk to town, bike to the beach club or any of the other pools - our five year old kids could make the ride easily. The owner provided four bikes for us as well, which made getting into town for dinner similarly easy. We're hoping to come back again, and will definitely try to stay at Pelican Porch.
How kind and gracious you are! Pelican Porch will always get an "A+" for effort with our guests!
100 yards from the Seaside Center less than 5 minute walk to the beach!
